Customer Reviews

Masen Everson S. ,

Just say trans :)

I think maybe one of you misspoke, or I misheard one of the statements in the LGB alliance espisode, but it sounded like you said “LGB and non-binary people” are in the LGB alliance and against trans people. Non-binary trans people ARE trans! Anyone who is against binary trans people is more than likely to hate non-binary trans folks even more. The white stripe in the trans pride flag is for us :) Trans can mean binary or non-binary, so I think most of the time it’s redundant to say “trans and non-binary” because lots of us acknowledge that we are trans, too. Anyone who is a gender besides the one they were assigned at birth is trans, whether that’s binary or non-binary 🌈
